Abstract:

Mainly legal, business, and political papers of two River Falls, Wis., lawyers, Ferris M. White and his son Kenneth.

Correspondence of Ferris White, 1933-1940, concerns his law partnership with his son, chairmanship of the Board of Bar Examiners, participation in the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, service as city attorney of River Falls, and land and stock investments in Canada, Iowa, Texas, and Montana. Many letters and related papers concern his work, 1933-1935, as county attorney for both Pierce and St. Croix counties for the Home Owners' Loan Corporation, an agency to assist home owners enmeshed in debt during the depression. Occasional letters also relate to Ferris White's interest in Democratic politics and state political issues. Among his correspondents were Grover Broadfoot, Edward J. Dempsey, F. Ryan Duffy, and Daniel H. Grady.

Records of Kenneth White include files from his law partnership with John W. Davison, 1941-1946, as well as personal papers of Davison; military correspondence of Kenneth White from his service in World War I and World War II and his membership in the 32nd Division of the Wisconsin National Guard; and political correspondence of Republican White concerning his support for William E. Borah in 1936, his concerns as a legislator (1937-1941) with measures to improve the state college system and support the National Guard. Among White's frequent correspondents were Jim Dan Hill, Merlin Hull, Ralph Immell, Warren P. Knowles, Philip F. La Follette, Oscar Rennebohm, and Alexander Wiley. A few family papers also are in the collection.
